A camouflaged Ferrari 458 Italia has sold for $1.1 million dollars during a charity auction.

The auction was the Cinema Against AIDS auction which was organized to raise money to help find a cure for AIDS. The event was held during the Cannes Film Festival last week.

The car in question was a stock Ferrari 458 Italia save for the camouflage paint job. The final hammer price was 1 million Euros, all of which will go directly to charity. This year’s event was the third time the auction has been held. To date, the organization has raised over $170 million to help fight against AIDS.

The car was offered for sale by Lap Elkann.

“I am really excited – says Lapo Elkann – that my Ferrari 458 has contributed to the success. It is a cause I have cared for and believed in for many years. I am happy that this gesture of mine made it possible to raise such an important amount in order to continue to support the many projects of the foundation to fight AIDS. Let me therefore profoundly thank the new owner for his generosity, because without him we would never have reached this sum”.
